Fine Cuisine and Wine with Chaîne des Rôtisseurs
“We recently attended a gathering of Chaîne des Rôtisseurs at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Umhlanga. Hosted by Philip Mostert, the Bailli Délégué (national president), it was an enlightening evening where members celebrated, not only their final gathering of last year.
The invitation had come from Chef Shaun Munro who is, as the Bailli, one of the senior office-bearer of the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs in the region. He is known as the “The Executive Chef of Elangeni Maharani”, he was decked in his chaines with multiple badges. So were many members, including noted chef, Jackie Cameron of the Jackie Cameron School of Food and Wine.
It was Jackie Cameron's student from her academy in Hilton who had earlier in the day, won the region's Young Chef competition, where she competed against four other young chefs from various hotels in Durban. The Jeunes Chef Rôtisseurs Competition is an annual event which offers young chefs the opportunity to demonstrate their culinary skills in a competitive environment with their peers.
She now goes on to the national finals of the competition, where she stands to represent South Africa in the world wide Chaîne des Rôtisseurs competition, where some of the best young chef talent get to test their skills. “
